Language:Krio is the most widely spoken language in Sierra Leone and is native to the Creoles who are freed slaves from Britain, The United States and West Indies. It is mainly derived from English but has influences from other African languages (Yuroba for example), European languages (such as French) and also contains some expressions found in the West Indies.
Currency:The leone, denoted by SLL, is the official currency of Sierra Leone, a country on the West African coast. One leone is further divided into 100 cents, which only comes in denominations of 100 and 50. A floating exchange rate regime began in June 1986 in order to correct a constant over-valuation of the leone.
